|One last task before removing the wings was drilling the gap fairing. This will get countersunk screws that will attach to the nutplates I have to put in the wing. This step was to position and drill the required screw holes.
|One more task I completed while I was waiting was to install the "Nose Job" from AntiSpat Aero. This little device is suppose to prevent the nose gear from folding under if I ever hit something hard enough.

|You can see the hole in these bolts...Now I can install the cotterpins.
|And here is version number two. This time I didn't bother trying to smooth it out with bondo.
|And here it is about 3 hours later with two layers of glass and two layers of carbon fiber laid up. Tomorrow the sanding begins...not looking forward to that.
|Top view. The top layer is actually fiberglass but the layer underneath is carbon fiber so the whole thing looks like carbon fiber when its wet. The glass is clear when its wet.
